Event description

Our Year 11 Theatre Studies class present Wolf Lullaby.

Aristotle argued that morality is learned, and that we are born as “amoral creatures” while Sigmund Freud considered new-borns a moral blank slate.

A CHILLING play that looks at children who murder, asking if there is intrinsic evil in the world. Wolf Lullaby explores the themes of parental guilt and responsibility and whether some people are just born evil.

Set in a bleak, remote Tasmanian town, a small child is murdered – and suspicion falls on nine-year-old Lizzie. Lizzie's mother is convinced her daughter is guilty and has to choose between her intuition and presenting Lizzie to the police while her father is in denial that his daughter could have been involved. Wolf Lullaby has the disturbing subject of children as murderers but asks not only why it occurs but how do we deal with it?

Playwright Hilary Bell was the inaugural winner of the Philip Parsons Young Playwrights Award in 1994 and is the daughter of John Bell, founder of the Bell Shakespeare Company.
